I have a bougainvillea in a container and all of a sudden it's leave started shriveling up and falling off. Not all of them but especially the ones at the end of branches. I water it regularly and fed it miracle grow last week. I have another one in a pot and it is doing fine. What could be wrong?

Possibly you over fertilized marbl. Or the pot has become water repellant and the water you give it is not getting into the rootzone.
For both possibilities, i'd drop the pot into a tub of water and give it a good soaking for 30 min . This will flush out excess nutrient and also re-wet the potting soil.
I wouldn't be too concerned, they're pretty hard to kill.
